2 Why Love & Logic Had to pick one of the sectionals Someone I know uses it and want to criticize them without sounding ignorant Other discipline methods not working as well youd like

3 Good Discipline Requires? Behavior-specific rules and pre-determined consequences Warn students first Give consequences immediately Respect! – students dont have to like their teachers, but must respect them

5 Our Experience with Love and Logic at SCS

6 Foundation People learn from their own choices Offer choices (within limits) Be nice. Apply consequences. Check back in the morning Enforceability

7 Christian? Biblical? Colossians 3:21 Parents, do not embitter your children, or they will become discouraged. (NIV) Proverbs 15:1 A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger. (NIV)

8 Christian? Biblical? Colossians 3:21 Parents, don't come down too hard on your children or you'll crush their spirits. The Message © Eugene H. Peterson Proverbs 15:1 A gentle response defuses anger, but a sharp tongue kindles a temper- fire. The Message © Eugene H. Peterson Discipline / Disciple (disciplina = teaching discipulus = student) How did Jesus discipline his followers?

9 Argue by Appointment only Go brain dead: dont try to reason with the student Repeat one linerstandard response until they get it – I bet it feels that way. – I know. – That may be so, but what did I ask/say? – I can talk to you about this at break.

10 I only argue at 10:05 or 3:15 Your choice.

11 Delayed Consequences OK or even best to delay consequences How? Im going to have to do something about this... Later. Try not to worry about it. Warnings FAIL: Students play the system

12 Recovery Goals – Teacher can teach – Other students can learn Recovery plan: Stages Secure the plan in advance

13 Recovery Stages Move in classroom Another classroom Office Recovery room in school Home

14 Lots of Choices Offer choices throughout your teaching Guidelines: either way youre deliriously happy Examples

15 Examples of Choices in Classroom Do you want to choose a partner or have teacher do it. Edit your own paper or have a partner do it. Answer questions on paper or out loud. Do the odd problems or the even problems. Play group game or individual game.

16 Students solve their problems Why? Kids need to learn self-confidence, solve problems, think for themselves But guide them: 5 steps

17 Guiding Students to Solve Their Own Problem Love & Logic STEPS -Calm empathy -Ask, How are you going to solve your problem? If needed, offer a list of suggestions (variety, not all good) Each one: How do you think that will work for you? Let the child decide to solve or not

18 Guiding Students to Solve Their Own Problem FIX IT? (Kronenberg) Calm, respectful Is that behavior above the line or below the line? Do you want a consequence or do you want to fix it ? Whats the consequence? I dont know yet, but it will be related, reasonable & respectful. Guide them in thinking of the fix it plan: questions Let the student choose to fix it If not, You choose not to fix the problem, guess what Mr/s _____ is going to have to do now?
